Subsequent to that, it was alleged that a store owner came out of his shop and released fire on the bandits, resulting in a gun battle in the heavily crowded area.
“I ran for my life when I hear the gun shots, all I see is everybody start running and ducking… and couple men run through orange walk,” said one eyewitness, who also alleged that the City Constabularies remained tucked away in their outpost, which was a step away from the scene.
Despite the battle between the businessman and the bandits, no one was injured except the elderly man who received injuries to his head.
